Edmonton Oilers forward Benoit Pouliot may be out of the lineup for a while.

It's believed that Pouliot suffered a separated shoulder during the third period of Sunday's game against the New York Islanders, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Adding fuel to the report is Pouliot arriving to the rink Monday with his right arm in a sling.

Pouliot has recorded 14 goals and 22 assists in 55 games for the Oilers this season.

Scott Gomez's stellar play in the American Hockey League has earned him a NHL contract.
The Ottawa Senators have signed the 36-year-old to a one-year contract that will keep him with the team for the rest of the season, according toTSN's Brent Wallace.
One-way deal at $575,000 for Scott Gomez. Gives them some depth for the rest of the season. He was in Hershey on a PTO. #Sens
— Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch) March 2, 2016
Gomez began the season with the St. Louis Blues, but was released by the club after managing just one goal and eight points in 21 games.
He was subsequently signed to a professional tryout contract by theWashington Capitals' AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears. There, he lit it up, posting four goals and 24 points in 18 games.
Gomez should provide the team with some short-term relief after the Senators announced Monday that forward Kyle Turris would be shut down indefinitely as he deals with a high ankle sprain.

Even though they no longer wear the same jersey, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Phil Kessel will always have Dion Phaneuf's back.

Kessel, who played alongside Phaneuf for six seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, said his former teammate was often mistreated throughout his tenure as captain of the team.

"Obviously, Dion is a great player and a good friend of mine," Kessel said Tuesday. "I think he's misunderstood in Toronto. I think a lot of times he wasn't treated fairly through the media and through the fans."

The 28-year-old sniper adds that the duo have kept in touch, and that Phaneuf is embracing his new role with the Ottawa Senators.

"I've talked to (Phaneuf) a little bit," Kessel said. "He's a professional. I think he knows now you can always get traded in this league."

Phaneuf has certainly found his game since being traded. The 30-year-old has recorded one goal and six assists in 10 games with his new club.

The two former teammates will face off against each other for the first time since the trade on April 5 in Ottawa.

Fucking Phil Kessel. Stopped filling his cavernous pie hold long enough to barf out support for Dion Phaneuf? Sorry, sweetie, that you and Phil had it so rough in Toronto.

As the Washington Capitals keep winning, their head coach continues to cement his legacy.
The Capitals hung on Wednesday for a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, giving Barry Trotz his 649th career win and moving him past Ron Wilson and into sole possession of ninth on the all-time list.

He accomplished the feat in his 1,341st game, doing so in 60 fewer contests than Wilson. The Capitals bench boss is now 24 wins from Mike Keenan, who ranks eighth all-time.
Trotz is one of four active coaches in the top nine:

RANK HEAD COACH       WINS  GAMES
1      Scotty Bowman     1244    2141
2      Joel Quenneville      793    1439
3      Al Arbour                782    1607
4      Ken Hitchcock         745    1388
5      Dick Irvin               692     1449
6      Lindy Ruff               690    1394
7      Pat Quinn               684    1400
8      Mike Keenan           672    1386
9      Barry Trotz             649    1341
10    Ron Wilson             648    1401

Many of these coaches earned their wins in the three-outcome era (wins, losses, and ties), but Trotz's milestone is impressive nonetheless.

Carey Price delivered the best news the Montreal Canadiens and their fans have heard in a very long time.

The defending Vezina and Hart Trophy winner met the media Thursday, and said he's feeling good about the possibility of returning this season.

"I'm pretty confident," Price said of a return. "I'm not going to set any timelines. But as far as the way things are progressing, it's looking pretty good."

Carey Price says his goal is to return to the #habs crease this season. "I'd rather do it sooner than later."

— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) March 3, 2016


Earlier in the day, Price faced shots from injured teammate David Desharnais. It was his first time stopping a puck since suffering a lower-body injury against the New York Rangers on Nov. 25.

"It felt great. I haven't seen a shot in over three months," Price said. "To be able to go on the ice and put in real work is really fun for me."

Price also confirmed he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his rehabilitation, and though the process is taking longer than expected, he's progressing daily.

Habs Carey Price says he's really "turned the corner" in his long rehabilitation.

— Eric Engels (@EricEngels) March 3, 2016
"Especially this week since starting to skate in my full equipment. I'm starting to push my limits more and more," Price added.

The 28-year-old posted an impressive record of 10-2-0 with a 2.06 GAA and .934 save percentage before going down with the ailment. The Canadiens are 20-26-6 without him in the lineup.

Not enough practice, unlike the Loafs and the Coilers.

After a potentially disastrous start to the season, the Anaheim Ducks are making history for all the right reasons.

With a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, the Ducks won their 11th game in a row, setting a new team record for consecutive victories.

The result also put Anaheim two points ahead of Los Angeles in the race for the Pacific Division crown, and marked Bruce Boudreau's 400th win as an NHL head coach.

Bruce Boudreau becomes the fastest coach to 400 #NHL wins (400-186-77), as #Ducks set franchise record with 11th straight win. Good for him.

— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) March 6, 2016

The hot streak runs back even further than the past 11 games.

Holy Anaheim. The #ducks are now 18-1-1 since mid-January and lead the Pacific Division.

— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) March 5, 2016
All of the above is significant for a few reasons, beginning with the month of October, wherein the Ducks posted a record of 1-7-2 while scoring a grand total of 10 goals and putting Boudreau's job very much in jeopardy.

Key to the Ducks' resurgence has been the play of David Perron, who's averaging a point per game since arriving in Anaheim, including this power-play goal against the Kings.

Now, the Ducks are flying towards the postseason, and appear on track to return to the Western Conference Finals one year after losing to Chicago in seven games during that round.

Terrible news for the New Jersey Devils.

Starting goaltender Cory Schneider has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his right knee, the club announced, according to The Record's Tom Gulitti. He'll be re-evaluated in two weeks.

That sound you heard? That was New Jersey's playoff hopes leaving the building.

Schneider is the Devils. He was hurt Friday after making a beautiful pad save, jamming his right knee into the goalpost in the process. New Jersey lost a huge game to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday, 6-1, falling seven points behind in the wild-card race. Schneider is missed.

A first-time All-Star this season, Schneider has a .923 save percentage, four shutouts, and 2.17 GAA. He's a large reason why the Devils are a top-10 defensive team. The club is last offensively, averaging only 2.2 goals per game.

The club will turn to Keith Kinkaid for now. He went into Sunday's game with a .910 save percentage in 14 games. Pittsburgh roughed him up, scoring six times on 30 shots.

Injuries have taken their toll on the Devils. The team's best offensive player, Mike Cammalleri, hasn't played since Jan. 26 and could miss the rest of the season.

What trade deadline?

Vancouver and Carolina made a minor deal Monday, the Canucks sending forward Dane Fox to the Hurricanes for future considerations.

Fox has spent the majority of the season in the East Coast Hockey League, with Kalamazoo, where he has a team-leading 26 goals and 50 points, but he's moving on up to the American Hockey League's Charlotte Checkers.

By trading fox, the #Canucks open up another contract spot. They currently have 44/50 - let the NCAA/CHL hunting begin! (hopefully)

— Ryan Biech (@ryanbiech) March 7, 2016
The 22-year-old was an undrafted free-agent signing of the Canucks in 2013. He's 6-feet tall and weighs 188 pounds. He had 30 goals in his first ECHL season, after scoring 64 goals in 67 games in his final season of junior hockey.

With an assist on Aleksander Barkov's first-period goal Monday, Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr collected point number 1,851 of his career, passing Gordie Howe for third place on the NHL's all-time points list.

There was a brief delay to the celebration of the 44-year-old's feat as the goal was immediately challenged. The Boston Bruins argued that goaltender Tuukka Rask was interfered with on the play.

The goal would stand, leaving Jagr just 36 points away from catching Mark Messier for second place on the all-time scoring list.

Most Points, NHL History
1. Wayne Gretzky: 2,857
2. Mark Messier: 1,887
3. Jaromir Jagr: 1,851
4. Gordie Howe: 1,850
5. Ron Francis: 1,798

— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) March 8, 2016
Monday saw Jagr hit another milestone as he moved ahead of Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque for ninth on the NHL's all-time games played list, dressing in his 1,613th career match.

The assist gives Jagr 28 helpers and 49 points in 63 games this season.

While Jaromir Jagr used Monday's contest between the Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers to make league history, Bruins head coach Claude Julien used it to set a franchise mark.


With his team's 5-4 overtime win, Julien became the Bruins' all-time winningest coach, moving past Art Ross with his 388th career win with the club.

Congrats, Coach! With tonight’s win, Claude Julien passes Art Ross to become #NHLBruins all-time wins leader. pic.twitter.com/OZz5xQy0Z9

— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 8, 2016
Julien now has a record of 388-215-85 in 688 career games with the Bruins. The 55-year-old will be honored by the club ahead of the its March 24th contest again the Panthers at TD Garden.
